Reaching, seeking….

“I am bound to my vague memory of you…Your caresses enfold me, like climbing vines on melancholy walls. I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to glimpse you in every window. Because of you, the heady perfumes of Summer pain me; because of you, I again seek out the signs that precipitate desires…”   Pablo Neruda

An elder can’t quite recall how to…..

once visions of wood

strong hands and a nimble mind

created keepsakes for grandkids

now the ravages 

of a stroke and cloudy mind

leave projects sitting still

the memory betrays

table saw, carpenter, shop, SwittersB

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
